Amusement arcade objection

The following planning application has been lodged Area 4-North West.  Application Number: 3032/12 Location.  11, Main Street, Finglas, Dublin 11. Proposal:  For the change of use of the ground floor area from retail use to use as an internet cafe/amusement arcade.
Dessie Ellis, Sinn Fein TD, 50 Main Street, Finglas, Dublin 11. last week lodged an objection to the change of use to an amusement arcade, In the objection Dessie outlined the nature of the remaining services  in Main Street Finglas, the decimation of the Village due to the opening of Charlestown Shopping Centre and the resulting closure of a number of retail units.  The existing services are used primarily by older members of the community who rely on public transport and the addition of an amusement arcade will add nothing to the village.
